Thanks for a great component, nvjtk.

Of course it works only on Windows Seven?

Yes, as it's an exclusive feature of Windows 7, it wouldn't be possible on earlier versions.

I'm using Windows 7 RTM x64 and the configuration page of this plugin says "This plugin only works with Windows 7 or later".

Are you running foobar2000 in compatibility mode?

really nice
but
I can't seem to get it to load my embedded album art
is there a special script that allows it to load embedded album art
or it just can't
and it needs to be in a specific folder?
thanks

What did you wrote in the path for the cover?

I tried to remove a cover path but the button doesn't work, it's grey.

Anyone know the difference in practice between this plugin and foo_w7shell? Pros and Cons?

Thanks!

This new version got the main window and 2 additional windows, cover and track info, w7shell replaces the foobar2000 window with a cover instead.
Not sure but I think only this one shows the track progress in the taskbar button and a nicer overlay icon, also configurable.
You can also define the colors on the buttons.

You can try them both and see which one you like best, don't use them at same time though.

I love how the taskbar now has an indicator of when the song will end. Great plugin, thanks!

Nope. I've also tried running it as admin, and tried both the download with the runtime and without.
Not sure why this won't detect that I'm using W7.

Hi,
this looks nice, but I can't get my covers to show up. I'm using titleformatting and absolute paths, isn't this supported?

Don't know why the online troubleshooter says this is a problem component that crashes a lot. It works great on my machine.

With 5 facets panels showing, if I open Foobar by clicking any of the windows shown in the taskbar, the 2nd facet display corrupts.
Also, why isn't the foobar window maximized when you click the preview in the taskbar? I find it fairly annoying that it opens in windowed mode every time I do so.

I don't know about the Facets' problem but foobar2000 shouldn't maximize when clicking the taskbar button, neither do any other programs.
Might've missed something but haven't noticed any program maximize that way.

You can use Win+Up for maximize if you want.

The middle preview window doesn't seem to show my foobar2000 window (foobar 0.9.6.9, W7 x64 Professional), any ideas?

This is not true - Most other programs restore to the state they were in previously, meaning that if they were maximized before, they will still be. This plugin is exceptional specifically because it doesn't do this.

I see what you mean, it doesn't restore to previous size.
Not sure if that's intended, we'll see what nvjtk says.

I mean it always restores to this "size", while all other windows restore to their previous size when I select them by clicking the taskbar preview pane: (also note the corrupted facet pane)

Yes, I tried, same here.
But you didn't wrote restore, so I thought you meant that you wanted it to be maximized, regardless of state.

Other programs behave as intended, correct.

Is it possible to not have the track progress shown in the taskbar button? Instead the taskbar button could only show progress when you are using utilities or tools (e.g. progress of replaygain scanning).

There is no way to query progress for arbitrary tasks like RG scanning or converting.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

Which is kind of sad as that is essentially the spirit in which the taskbar progress display was conceived by MS. Internet Explorer 8 won't display a progress bar on its icon every time it's loading a webpage but only when you are downloading files etc.
